Growing up in a traditional Chinese family, winter solstice is a rather big festival attached with great importance. My mum has always been telling us that we’ll be one year older after finishing bowls of brightly coloured tang yuan, which symbolizes reunion. For me, it is supposed to be a time of gathering with families and friends for a heart warming dinner as such:
(From L to R)
Steamed White Chicken. Stir Fried Assorted Vegetables. Braised Mushroom & Chicken Feet. Pan Fried Prawns. Siu Yoke & Char Siu. Sea Cucumber Soup with Cabbage, Fish Balls & Pork Balls.
There’s nothing as blissful as looking around the table and seeing faces you love and serving them good food.
Happy Winter Solstice everyone!
